Congressman Jason -- to -- talk -- it works with Ryan on the House Budget Committee and joins us now.
But you've been supportive congressman of Paul Ryan's a budget plan but what about Mitt Romney's how much do you know about it and would you be as supportive of that even if their differences.
I have supported -- -- for a long time this this marketplace.
To get jobs in the economy going -- some stability -- some real leadership and then I've been a huge fan of Mitt -- for live from the get -- this country needs a turnaround everybody knows that and Mitt Romney is the person to do that let me ask you a little bit about the specifics as -- look at governor Romney's side tax plan in terms -- -- the differences between what he said.
And what Paul Ryan has said both the Washington Post and roll call -- done some reporting on it.
One of the -- capital gains right Paul Ryan said his budget let's get rid of the capital gains tax completely -- -- He not only did not say that but in the case in the up primary he went after Newt Gingrich verse you proposing something similar -- he doesn't wanna -- wants to.
Cut the capital gains tax would not get rid of it completely because under the Ryan plan.
Romney himself couple years ago -- -- pay barely any taxes so he's already on the record with that would you be supportive of Romney's approach as opposed to Ryan's there.
Well what Mitt Romney is -- as if your adjusted gross income is 200000 dollars -- last -- dividends.
Capital gains interest income.
They would take that down to zero I think governor Romney is sensitive to maintaining the current taxed.
Structure and rates.
Than those that the highest income levels but -- -- -- -- 100000 dollars or less.
He wants to take those down to zero and that you're probably right within -- back when they are political America Jenna Johnson and above -- But that the it ticket brand what president is trying to do is they got a little loop the rate.
The Democrats -- that is the fundamental -- -- fact the two years.
In his budget he never proposes that we actually balance write books in this nation so but -- there's a huge monumental -- right.
Verizon wants to make -- so -- take -- so simple that -- -- only -- -- rates sending.
Whereas Romney is more saying -- let's keep sort of what we have need to cut the rates that you.
Public I think they're gonna work that out between the two of them I'm I'm supported the top of the ticket Mitt Romney I think he's laid out -- crystal clear plan that I think that business climate in the the nation as a whole will support we -- to -- drive down that the corporate income tax rates and and really focus on middle class America that's.
That's in the hallmark of -- Romney Ryan presidency is going to be the idea that we need to get the economy moving and and get people back to work and really his focus is gotta be on the middle class OK so these are some of the.
